OCB Drug Testing Guidelines

Competitors cannot have used any substances listed below during the duration periods specified. All participants are required to pass polygraph screenings prior to competitions (polygraph test results from OCB and other natural federations' shows can be honored for OCB shows held within six weeks from the contest where testing took place. For federations other than OCB, the polygraph examiner who conducted the testing MUST send verification to OCB, OR the examiner's name and contact information MUST be supplied to OCB in order for results to be honored). In addition to polygraph testing, pro qualifying placement winners at amateur events, and the top three placement winners in pro classes at pro events, must pass a urine test.

Polygraph screenings are used since events are 7 years drug-free for most substances. Most anabolic steroids and other banned substances are no longer detectable in urine within a few weeks from last use, and growth hormone use cannot be detected with urine testing. Note: Approximately half who don’t pass the polygraph are bikini competitors. Certain banned substances can yield an unfair advantage in getting leaner and shapelier.
